Happy Birthday to Me!!!

Actually on the 7th, for those of you who might be reading this on the 8th.

I cannot believe how old I am...blech 27, how did that happen:) I remember just yesterday being single and 18 living it up. There are a whole list of things that I thought I would do and acomplish by this age that I haven't...and I am so glad. I was under the impression that I wanted to be free and single forever and instead here I am and I have accomplished the greatest thing I never knew I wanted.

I have the most amazing husband in the whole world. He loves me and supports me no matter what, thinks I am the most beautiful woman in the world and makes me laugh every single day.

As if it couldn't get any better I have two of the most beautiful boys I have ever seen in my life, and not just saying that cause they are mine. I live for these kids and that is so much more fullfilling then living for just myself. They light up my everyday.

So instead of being depressed about how old I am, I cannot wait for each year cause every moment with my family makes me want a thousand more.

Here is an example of my husband cracking me up...we were cleaning and he put on one of my headbands and posed for this picture :) This was just taken in our bathroom and the background was so distracting that I did a lot of work to take it out...all for my entertainment :)

And my beautiful children:

My goal was to take a good self portrait on my bday but I hate my own pics so much I gave up really quick, this was the best I got but someday I will get a good one :) I am so uncomfortable in front of the camera but I am working on it.

Btw, that amazing husband I mentioned totally got me tickets to Wicked...so stoked :)

Whoa--GREAT self-portrait. You don't look uncomfortable at all. Your youngest has incredible eyes--so glad you did those portraits in B&W so the faces are the focus.
You will LOVE "Wicked". Saw it this summer and it is a HOOT!

Nancy said...

OK, your self portrait is BEAUTIFUL! And your other pix are so cute too! I (think) I can barely remember being 27 once, and I suppose I felt like you, however; enjoy this age and every year to come! When you get to be my age, WOW, you'll think of 27 as "baby-hood"! hee hee!

Mom2Drew said...

You get to see Wicked? OH, I am SO officially JEALOUS! Love the song, LOVE that shot of your DH...hilarious! You and I should definitely meet;)

Gypsy Girl said...

Okya let me start with the age 27? That is still way way young. Talk to me when you hit your 40's
Your hubby is funny and the catchlights in your son's eyes are great.Hapyy B-day 2 U.

robin said...

Happy b'day. Ya, wait til you hit your 40's, then you can talk about your age. For now, you are still young with such a good looking family, enjoy it! My friend saw Wicked and said it was wonderful, have fun!

Kris said...

Happy birthday!! 27, wow ... you are so YOUNG. :) I'm coming up on 35 ... now that's OLD! LOL.

Great pics - looks like your family has a lot of fun and what beautiful black and whites. Really lovely, clear conversion.

--sme said...

You've got GREAT b&w of the kids! And is that a self portrait? Oh please share how you did it, it turned out lovely!!!

Angela2932 said...

Happy Birthday, beautiful child! I'm glad you feel it's going too fast because it means you are enjoying it. But, ha! Being twice your age,I scoff at your sense of oldness! You're not even in the running for "oldness!" (And I've never yet met someone who didn't somehow hold their own age against themselves, as in "I'm ____(fill in the blank), and I haven't even (fill in the blank) yet!" 12 year old and 90 year olds all say the same thing!
